Tinder’s Groundhog Lothario, Men and Their Donuts and Boomers on Millennials’ Love for the…

Why yes, yes it does. That’s because smartphones have a flaw in their design that cause their cameras to flatten images, making your double chin look more like a triple chin. The good news: There are some tricks to making yourself appear slimmer in pictures.

Did You Know…?

…that some landlords offer tenants the opportunity to rent-to-own their house/apartment/condo? For many millennials who have been stuck renting in lieu of buying thanks to stagnant wages, soaring student loans and an obsession with avocado toast, a path to home ownership might sound like a deal worth making. But how do rent-to-own agreements work exactly? And aren’t they just another scam? A few answers.

Round and Round

Why are more and more kids causing mayhem on bridges, cornfield-baseball diamonds and city intersections by spinning their cars in circles—aka doing “donuts”? Talk to the hell-raisers themselves, and they’ll simply say “it’s cool.” But its relative coolness has a lot to do with where you’re from, how you were brought up, and more than anything else, how bored you are.

Ridin’ Dirty

Don’t know if you know, but the über-popular keto diet has a slightly scuzzy younger brother: Dirty Keto. What is dirty keto, exactly? Well, if you’re riding dirty, you get to eat shit like this:

Short Kings No More

When the growing gets tough, short kings get “stature lengthening.” That’s the name of an incredibly painful and equally expensive elective surgery short men are getting to give themselves just for a few extra inches in height. It sounds absolutely miserable:

The procedure is based on a principle known as “distraction osteogenesis,” in which the femur bone is broken in two and slowly stretched apart. Then, four times a day, the external fixator — a scaffold on the outside of the leg holding the broken bones in place with pins — slowly pulls the bone segments apart, allowing new bone tissue to regrow within the gap and lengthening the leg by one millimeter per day.

Despite all that (seemingly unnecessary) pain, though, here’s why the vertically challenged are convinced it will allow them to tower over their insecurities.
